|Proceeds Benefit The Salvation Army’s Homeless Prevention Programs
(March 27, 2104) BRADENTON, Fla. – Balancing work, family and faith is difficult for anyone – now imagine balancing all three high above the Grand Canyon, untethered and without a net.
Manatee County local celebrity, Nik Wallenda, manages to balance it all with finesse and grace.
On Thursday, April 10, Wallenda will be the guest speaker at The Salvation Army, Manatee County’s Evening of Hope dinner at the Powel Crosley Estate, 8374 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.
Wallenda shot to international fame in June when he balanced himself on an inch-wide high wire, 1,500 feet in the air as he cross the Little Colorado river.
Wallenda is expected to speak about his faith journey – both on the ground and in the air – during The Salvation Army dinner.
Also, as part of evening Wallenda will share insights on his career, his faith, family and how he ”balances” it all. All proceeds from the event benefit the homeless prevention services offered by The Salvation Army, Manatee County.
